Coatings Technology Institute

The site also features ACA's Coatings Technology Institute, an online education program administered by the British Coatings Federation. The training curriculum offers multi-module levels of education "on all subjects germane to coatings," the association says.

CTI's International Certificate in Coatings Technology can be earned by completing six modules, with at least four from a chosen level of study. Courses are downloaded from CTI's study portal; and students work through online assessments, written assignments and a final exam.

ACA is a non-profit association representing paint and coatings manufacturers, raw materials suppliers, distributors and technical professionals.
